A test in the towing tank can tell you something about how your vessel or offshore structure will behave in waves and current regarding the propulsive power, seakeeping performance, manoeuvring capabilities or dynamic positioning.
Many ships will have to cope with harsh weather influencing safety and comfort onboard the vessel. Passenger ships require good seakeeping characteristics to ensure the passengers’ comfort and avoid seasick passengers.
We make sure that your fish farming cage system will be able to withstand the loads’ subjected to at sea.
Model test of offshore fish farms
By testing the hydro- and aerodynamic forces affecting the offshore structure you will be able to optimise the operation and lower your maintenance costs.
Dynamic positioning test
With a reliable DP system, you will be able to operate at sea without mooring or anchoring; operations which otherwise would have been impossible.
Subsea structures are required to be overtrawlable if they are not marked with a buoy or vessel. An overtrawlability test will indicate the critical areas.
Critical situations at sea require good manoeuvring qualities, it is therefore of paramount importance that every vessel has optimum manoeuvring capabilities.
Detail flow studies
Special flow studies may be used in the early phase of a vessel project or in connection with modifications of an already existing vessel.
